In the spring of 2021 a consorcium was formed for the 3-year EU project named VACCELERATE, in which Masaryk University, through its research infrastructure CZECRIN, is involved at the level of the project partner. It is a research project with the aim of conducting vaccination studies of phase II and III against COVID-19, or other infectious diseases. The aim is to create a platform for the design, implementation and evaluation of data for future vaccination studies. The project is coordinated by the University Hospital in Cologne. Representatives for the Czech Republic are prof. MUDr. Metr Husa, CSc. (Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases, University Hospital Brno and Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University) and doc. MUDr. Regina Demlová, Ph.D. (Head of the Institute of Pharmacology of Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University and Principal Investigator of the CZECRIN project).
